We report cytogenetic findings in a case of grade III chondrosarcoma. Complex clonal chromosome aberrations including monosomy of chromosomes 4, 8, 13, and a consistent t(5;14)(q23;p12) were observed in all cells. There were no structural or numerical anomalies involving chromosome 12. The complexity of the chromosome aberrations reflect the advanced stage of this chondrosarcoma; we suggest a possible involvement of the EXT1 gene located on chromosome 8.
